Strangers is the latest project from Peabody award-winning producer Lea Thau. It’s a podcast from KCRW and Radiotopia where people tell true stories from their lives. Here’s the latest episode: A Filipino-Albino-Gay-Straight-Boy-Girl-Poor-Privileged-Immigrant-American Life.
Lea has been traveling around interviewing Trump supporters and she’s tried to do it differently. She’s gotten drunk with them and high with them, she’s road-tripped with them and stayed overnight in their kids’ bedrooms, she’s cried with them, dined with them, yelled at them (and vice versa) to bring the conversation to a new place, using herself to get a more intimate look at a confusing situation (sort of like she did with her online dating experiences in the popular “Love Hurts” series). In this first instalment of the Trumpland mini-series, Lea travels to Reno, Nevada to meet Alicia.
